About Chesterton Mill

Run by generations of the French family Chesterton Mill was used to grind corn into flour for over 100 years. Over time as technology changed the family moved from windmill sails, to steam and then diesel. True to its heritage, today the Mill has evolved once more to provide a new community of commercial workspaces for like-minded, creative and innovative people to work and thrive in. 

Camel Projects

Camel Projects is a property investment company run by Simon Jones and Andrew Slaymaker.

Collectively they think a little differently about property; preferring to work with and develop properties and sites that are a little bit unusual, cut from a different cloth.

Camel Projects breathes new life into its properties, enhancing the available space and reputation; re-positioning them in the marketplace to attract the sharpest, most creative companies and individuals in Cambridge and beyond.

Camel Projects cares about the communities in which it invests and works hard to build and retain trust, with the objective of offering something that’s above and beyond the rest of the market.

The space we own, develop and manage also physically expresses these values.
